First order of business, Happy 4th of July everyone!! This is literally one of my most favorite holidays of the year if you can believe it. The Americana, the parades, the food, the drinking, the hanging out together laughing & of course, the fireworks! For the last few years we have been heading up to Stowe, Vermont for the 4th and it truly has become a staple in our lives. Beyond the town's beauty lays small town America personified. Stowe takes their Independence Day quite seriously here with everything from well done games for children to live bands playing while outstanding local food wafts through the air. The firework display here is one of the best I have ever had the privilege to see. Perhaps my absolute favoritest part (yes bad grammar but I don't care), the explosion of the fireworks actually echos off the mountain ranges. It truly is, AMAZING!

Allow me to give your mind a bit of mental stretching for a moment. Roughly 2 months ago I featured a super sweet young Asian couple who's engagement session was in the eerily wonderful El Dorado Mine & Ghost Town. The ideas & attention to detail made me eager with anticipation for their wedding, I mean why not! When your couple is willing to sit square in the middle of the road, fist full of balloons, for one hell of a shot, your hopes get pretty high for their wedding day you know what I mean?! Nicole Sibulo & Neal Gregorio finally did tie the knot just recently, marrying in a Spanish mission inspired church on a gorgeous Las Vegas day. The bridesmaids were dressed in light pink flowing Greecianesque dresses, while the bride herself wore a perfectly fitted sweetheart neckline corset top gown with ruched bottom. Manolo Blahnik's firmly placed on her feet, Nicole was off to enjoy her dream day. Gorgeous florals dressed the affair in the softest of pinks with pops of just the right accent colors. Ever one for small fun details, N&N's (thats right, N&N's!) were outfitted in their very own mason jars as gifts for the guests. Nicole & Neal's wedding day was perfectly luxurious with just the right amount of down to earth.
Tess Maxwell & Nathan Kruger came into the Storyboard Wedding fold back on back on April 24th with their gorgeous Old School Vegas Engagement Shoot. I loved everything about their shoot, as well as the lovely Tess and Nate, asking Moxie Studios to defiantly send their wedding our way! You might recall Nate's adorable kids taking part, & they are no less cute in their wedding! For their wedding day they went for a vintage glam feeling, using deep eggplant, grey & white. The shades of purple that were selected were perfection, utilizing deep rich hues in the floral arrangements, as well was, yes I am saying this, stunning Vans sneakers for all the groomsmen! Yes sneakers can be stunning when they are this dope! This wedding is perfect Vegas elegance, taking place at the very height of the strip, on the roof top of the Platinum Hotel. Baroque picture frames, perfectly curated candy bar, & custom blinged up shoes are a few highlights of this sophisticated Vegas stunner!

Country chic eat your heart out! Ellie Archer & Tim Wheeler's wedding is the absolute personification of what it is to throw an elegant & chic farmhouse wedding! Capitalizing on their gorgeous farm, Ellie & Tim turned their private Tasmania, Australia mecca into the perfect location for their intimate nuptials. Allowing for the natural charm to shine through, our gorgeous couple enhanced the space with soft dusty pink roses, light beige bridesmaid dresses, shabby chic touches of framed family photos & barrel cake stands. If your considering a similar style wedding, I highly urge you to take some worth while inspiration from this country stunner!
